“Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) all vary but can be a
fantastic opportunity for Australian business to leverage their place in the
international marketplace,” he said.

countries for Australian goods, in the form of tariff elimination or reduction.

“For businesses already exporting
goods to an FTA partner country, this increases the competitiveness of their
products in those markets, especially compared to competitors from countries
that do not receive preferential treatment under an FTA.

trade facilitation matters, to provide expeditious, predictable, transparent

opportunity to learn more and explore the opportunities created by the North
Asia FTAs,” he said.
“Participants will hear from Assistant
Ag and Water Minister Sen Anne Ruston, China Advisor for Austrade Dr Chuyang
Liu and advisers from Austrade and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”
